NLP technique - Anchoring

When someone in an intense state, at the peak of this mood gets a specific (external) stimulus then the stimulus and state are neurologically linked.

An anchor is a stimulus (trigger) that creates a certain state (response).

The technique anchoring refers to the process of associating an external trigger with an internal response (state), so that the state can be reaccessed.

The four steps of anchoring

  1. Have a person recall a past vivid experience.
  2. Apply a specific stimulus to the peak.
  3. Change the person’s state (by using a break state).
  4. Set off the anchor to test.

The Keys of anchoring

  1. Intensity of the experience.
  2. Timing of the anchor (see table below).
  3. Unique stimulus.
  4. Repetition.
Anchoring Technique

The basics of Anchoring

  1. Ensure you first have rapport.
  2. Set the framework. Explain what you are going to do and what the other person can expect.
  3. Set a visual, auditory or kinesthetic anchor or combine them. Ensure you have a unique spot on the body for a kinesthetic anchor. Ensure that this is a safe, acceptable spot and does not trigger other emotions.
  4. Place yourself in the desired mood.
  5. Calibrate the physiology during the different phases of the anchor technique.
  6. Handle the appropriate language. Let somebody remember a real experience by asking
    • “Can you remember a time that you felt completely X?"”
    • “Can you remember a specific moment?"”
    • “Step in that moment, associated (look through your own eyes)"”
    • “See what you saw, hear what you heard, notice what you noticed and feel what you now feel."

Preferred states to anchor

  1. Naturally occurring moods are the most intense.
  2. Real associated specific memories of the past are less intense.
  3. General generalised memories are less intense.
  4. Constructed moods are less intense and are the least preferred.
